3:02 pm
a mangled mess. from the air you can see the obligate thing left is the outer edge of the building. the interior collapsed upon itself. there is still a lot damage inside. there is a lot to go through. they are sifting through it inch by inch looking for the weres of those snowed. sergeant kelly from the alameda county sheriff talked how devastating this has been to everyone involved. >> it is a huge number, we are still not done. you can hear behind me they are working and pulling this building apart and we are really starting to get deeper into the building and as we do that we continue to find more inches. >> they are so others about the structure, from the camera you can see this is something we have fought seen until now, inspectors from the fire department on top of the building. they put a portable light up
3:03 pm

3:41 pm
the stand your ground is so --. >> stand your ground? >> a it is about the investigation. relatively they say the cases are inside he has been cooperative, it is a preliminary investigation, a last law enforcement are say we are not done. the charges could be coming but the investigation is continuing. >> so, 10 years ago at the same spot, ronald gasser pursued another motorist and punched him during a near identical road rage incident. gasser had three other traffic violations won't that have been grounds to arrest him after he shot and killed joe mcknight in a road rage incident? >> i would say, yes and that is why i am not an advocate for stand your ground because we have history people of shooting whoever they want by getting away it say okay, this person posed a let to me and tried to kill me first. >> you keep bring up stand your ground. here is why.
3:42 pm
they saying, the sheriff, saying that ronald gasser fired three times from inside the vehicle. how can he use stand the ground law as defense or reason for local authorities that tout arrest him? is it stand your ground, to my understanding, shouldn't your life be in danger? >> a it is subjective. the shooter is going to say, wait, i sat with my car and saw mcknight facing me who was not armed coming to my car i honestly reasonably believed my life was in jeopardy. >> but that is subjective. that is the key, orionable." you have to go by what a reasonable person who believe and in there is no proof of him having a weapon how can he justify killing. >> it is so subjective and that is the problem. what is going into gasser's mind at the very moment, it is a
3:43 pm
split second that is why the cases result in non-conviction. >> but a rest record of the same type of road rage. >> 10 years ago, and the courts will not allow that in. the jury will never hear it. >> unfortunately. that is why i don't support the "stand your ground" wallet is used for the wrong reasons. >> we have to step in and do something. we are dealing with the laws. >> the jefferson parish sheriff said ronald gasser appears to have fired three shots in inside the vehicle. reports from witnesses saying that gasser shot and killed mcknight while mr. mcknight was on the ground so should the family try to secure a private medical examiner and in they want to do that how do they do that? >> undoubtedly. luke up -- look up for an
3:44 pm
expert. we did that when my sister was married. all the families of the victim get the independent expert. >> they will look at as the investigation goes on, they are look at eyewitnesses, interviewing more of them, and video from cell phone and surveillance video and how can this end up? >> this point it is preliminary. it could end up in charges, and it could end up being charged and going to trial because he will say i will not lead guilty to murder i did this in self defense. i did it upon "stand your ground" law. it could go the distance >> what is outraging so many people he killed someone and he was able to walk free and he is not chargeed. there is going to have to be action in this case because you cannot just say stand your ground and that is justified. >> the leaders have to step in and change the law. we have to dole with where we are and where the law stands

3:47 pm
a capitulation and now that castro is gone, we have a new administration coming to town, it is time to do something and change that. we want our terrorists back. >> now, willie mora l. s, a bombmaker that lost his hands. >> hebrew up himself on what would have been my dad's 37th birthday, he lost nine fingers. he got in a shotout and end up in election and then the united states sent him to cuba where he is a guest. not a welcome back. morales has mooned about the pair diets he wanted to be slave the risk can people and now he can come back county we know the bans are not pleased with him, and if we are getting a terrorist back that are there now willie morales is the top

3:54 pm
on his side. but now he will be going and it is not clear what sort of a caretaker government is going to be put together to bridge this gap now until there are fresh elections. the reform was really being called the latest crest of a worldwide populous wave. though it is a bit confusing in italy because he was trying to make a change for the better. he was trying to slimline the system, a system at times which is crippled with its own bureaucracy and voting against a leader two and a half years into his term has failed to impress enough people. it was a resounding defeat. exit polls showed it right away and he just conceded that defeat. how this affects the global economy in the near future does remain to be seen but much of the anger channeled into the inability to pull out of the economic slump with debt 135% of
